Abstract: The objective of this study is to comprehensively understand how the wages of first-time newly employed IT workers are affected by the interaction between not only by the type of employment but also by the job search path and the type of company or business. The research results show there are wage differences for first-time newly employed IT workers according to their employment type and job search path and their employment type and company type. It was also noted that there was an interaction effect between the variables. Particularly in the case of first-time workers in IT fields that were employed through early and regular recruitment, the wages for those under regular full-time permanent terms of employments was higher than non-regular workers. Also, for workers hired through a companys special recruitment methods, the wages were significantly lower for those hired as non-permanent employees compared to regular full-time employees. In addition, although, the wages of non-regular workers in the IT sector was lower than regular full-time workers in private corporations and government-invested enterprises, the wages of non-regular workers was higher than regular full-time workers in government agencies (public servant/military personnel), independent and educational institutes. Therefore, we suggest university students who plan to later work in the field of information communication and for university personnel in student support, to engage and plan differentiated job search activities.
